Early French Comics
Imagerie d’Epinal L’Arroseur

Imagerie dEpinal LArroseur at The Book Palace

Ref: IMAGERIEEPINALARRO (click for larger picture)

Rare fascinating early French comic strip on single hand-coloured sheet.

This is a very rare single sheet of a series of hand-coloured sheets published in France in the late 1880s. This is number 14 series 4. Printed on one side only. Tears at page edge.

Curiously, this predates and has the same storyline as one of the Lumière Brothers early short films by the name L'Arroseur arrosé (The Sprinkler Sprinkled), produced in 1895.

Format: early comic strip on single hand-coloured sheet.
